for me:

-not with vdr 1.3.27

and others:

-connecting the audio out to soundcard or hifi equipment, the harmonic
distortion of this output IS significant (can listen about >10%), not
only for my card, others reported too and its stated even in vdr wiki.

the problem is, the code is insufficent for this chip (tried several
hours, will no more, its too complex and risky -> uneconomical redesign
effort), does not belong to that file, supports not mostly used
international tv-standards (says only pal B/G). this is the job of a
specialized driver.
since theres one yet, i wont reinvent the wheel ;)
